Fordham trains on its home turf, Jack Coffey Field
Week one opponent Fordham began its training camp Sunday as it's opening game at UConn is now just 20 days away.
You can read the latest report about the Rams and their camp here.
One headline out of the Bronx is that the starting QB position is up for grabs. Right now, it's a battle between Long Island native Ryan Higgins, and Griffin Murphy from Massachusetts.
The Fordham QB whp started against the Lions last year, Blake Wayne, is moving to wide receiver where the Rams have lost last season's top three stat leaders to graduation.
But the big concern for Columbia will be what looks like an excellent Fordham running attack with star senior Darryl Whiting returning and scary freshman Vaughn Scott joining him in the backfield. The Rams also have a big veteran offensive line.

#36: Slipping through the Cracks
It's hard to think of worse way Columbia could have started its week 7 game at Yale.
Reeling from back-to-back losses where the Lions run defense was the #1 culprit each time, the Elis embarrassed the Columbia defenders with a big ground gainer from RB Alex Thomas.
On just the second play from scrimmage, Thomas broke several tackles and escaped down the sideline for a 42 yard TD and a quick 7-0 Bulldog lead.
... but the Lion nightmare beginning was just, er, beginning.
